Two individuals in the
Residential Program received furniture (dressers, tables, chairs, mirror, etc.) for the holidays through the New Beginnings Program at
Lafayette Park United Methodist Church.
The donated furniture will help the new residents get back to a sense of normalcy and maintain stable housing. Both individuals, as well as our Residential team, are very grateful for the generosity of the folks at New Beginnings and appreciate their time and effort.
One of the residents shared that "receiving the furniture is a wonderful way to start the holiday."
